§ Mr. Michael Spicer
asked the Secretary of State for Transport what progress has been made with the planning stages of the Evesham bypass; and when he expects construction to begin.
§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke
I hope to publish draft statutory proposals for this scheme in the late spring. As announced in our White Paper published on 17 February, the scheme is in our main programme for 1984 and 1985. If all goes well, we hope to start construction in 1984.
